Brisbane based duo, thewhiskeyarchive brings a special blend of smooth, smoky, nuevo-folk to The Wesley Anne on Sunday, 24 March. Performing tracks from their debut self-titled EP, thewhiskeyarchive’s combination of ukulele songstress Jane Cameron and singer/songwriter Mark Bentley creates a vocal, musical and song-writing chemistry that is captivating in its honesty, insight and power.

The Whiskey Archive has emerged quietly over the last eighteen months with a string of successful shows in their home town of Brisbane – including their debut EP launch at the Old Museum in August. Drawing on influences as varied as Radiohead, REM, The Dirty Three, The Cure, Townes Van Zandt, Justin Townes Earle, Portishead, The Saints and Paul Kelly, thewhiskeyarchive is set to intrigue the uninitiated - tantalising with a bluesy flavour, teasing with a hint of alt-country, tipping their hat to the punk and goth influences from Brisbane’s music scene of the 70s and 80s and all with sweet, poignant harmonies that shiver up your spine.

Joining The Whiskey Archive at The Wesley Anne is local folk inspired, indie band – Big Winter.

Starting as a small acoustic outfit, Big Winter has recently put some hair on its chest and grown a big wintry beard. Combining stunning vocals and intricate instrumentation with the soul-stirring power of electric strings, guitar, bass, keyboard and drums, the broad appeal of this six-piece Melbourne-based group has seen them play everywhere from The Espy to the Art Gallery of Ballarat.

The band released their first EP Sorrow Down in 2011 as a three-piece under their former name, Indigo and the bear. Big Winter followed up with the major launch of their EP Simple Ideas in September 2012 and the launch of their debut film clip in January 2013. The band will be hitting the studio again with new material in March 2013.

Tickets are available at the door.

Jane Cameron from thewhiskeyarchive will also be making a solo appearance at the Unpaved Songwriter Session on Monday, 11 March at the Old Bar in Fitzroy.

“Their style is aptly described on their website as “folk meets grunge”, but like any good whiskey there is much to savour and the more I drink in this CD the more I like it!” - Julie Minto, Folk Rag

"Mixing blissful ukulele tones with rustic alt-country and bluesy ideals, thewhiskeyarchive tip their cap to artists like Paul Kelly, Dirty Three and Justin Townes Earle, without mimicking them in the slightest. Check this fantastic two-piece out..." - Timeoff

“…gentle music - with balls!” - Robyn Clare, 4ZZZ
